According to the New York Times, former President Donald Trump’s family business is facing yet another criminal inquiry, which as the outlet notes, is already under indictment. The company owns a golf club that is facing a criminal investigation by another prosecutor’s office that has begun to examine financial dealings.
“In recent months, the district attorney’s office in suburban Westchester County, N.Y., has subpoenaed records from the course, Trump National Golf Club Westchester, and the town of Ossining, which sets property taxes on the course, a sprawling private club that is perched on a hill north of New York City and boasts a 101-foot waterfall,” the report states.
“The full scope of the investigation could not be determined, but the district attorney, Mimi E. Rocah, appears to be focused at least in part on whether Mr. Trump’s company, the Trump Organization, misled local officials about the property’s value to reduce its taxes, one of the people said,” the outlet reports. “Ms. Rocah, a Democrat, has not accused anyone at the company of wrongdoing, and it is unclear whether the investigation is examining Mr. Trump’s conduct or if it would ultimately lead to any charges.”
“Still, the Westchester inquiry intensifies the law enforcement scrutiny on Mr. Trump and his family business,” the report adds. “Both have been the subject of a long-running criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is examining a range of potential financial and tax improprieties.”

Trump is facing an increasing amount of scrutiny.
New York’s attorney general, Letitia James, opened a civil investigation. The Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr., has been conducting a criminal investigation. The twice-impeached one-term president might face another deposition by the end of the year as part of a defamation lawsuit filed by former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos, who has accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in 2007. Zervos said that Trump defamed her during his campaign when he claimed she lied about the alleged assault.
E. Jean Carrol also sued the former president for defamation after the ex-president accused her of lying about an alleged rape in the 1990s. Trump just gave a 4-hour deposition over a lawsuit. And there are other inquiries, too, including from the state of Georgia over the former president trying to overturn the election results.
